Protein Unfolding Application Note Now Online

The biological function of many macromolecules such as proteins and RNA are tightly coupled to their conformation and their conformational dynamic. The correct folding of a protein into its native state is essential for its biological function. Misfolded or unfolded proteins are known to be either (partially) inactive or to…

STED Application Note Now Online

Today’s quantitative analysis of DNA-protein interactions at the single-molecule level requires the capability of measuring under biologically relevant conditions with high temporal resolution. This problem can especially be observed when in vitro experiments are linked with the in vivo situation in which proteins interact highly dynamic with DNA at high…
